Tango is one of the world's most popular art forms. With its inherent sensuality and sexual overtones, it is no wonder that the tango has created intrigue throughout the world. The all-star musicians on this disc recreate traditional tangos, beautifully capturing the essence of the form with elegance and panache. Washington Galli, the vocalist, epitomizes the style of tango singing, adjusting to the constantly pulsating underlying rhythm while manifesting freedom of phrasing and interpretation. Despite the passage of time since these pieces were originally composed, the works remain fresh, as the tango remains a poignant expression of our deepest human emotions.

Reviews

"The instrumental numbers, including the moving mid-tempo 'Nostalgico' and the jazzy, impressionistic 'Nocturna,' showcase the musical and emotional range of the tango as well as the superior musicianship of Raul Jaurena and company."
